Black Panther Group Says They May “Protect” Polling Places Again This Cycle

Philadelphia_polling_place_security_patrols_2008

Why not? The Obama administration let them get away with it last time.

Because standing outside of a polling place with a billy club is ok, but asking voters to verify their identity with a photo ID is a racist affront to voter rights or something.

During an interview on WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Shabaz was asked whether his group is planning to go to U.S. polling stations in the upcoming presidential election.

Shabazz replied: “I will say that as this election comes up in November, we will consider our options. And we will consider the fact whether we will legally and lawfully go to the polls again to make sure there is no intimidation against our people, which was our intent in 2008.”

They want to protect their people from intimidation. But who is going to protect us from their intimidation?

    From the posted link:

    The Department of Justice became aware of the incident on Election Day
    and started an inquiry. Under the Bush administration, a criminal
    investigation into the incident was started, but later dropped.

    and

    The [Obama] Justice Department then sought and obtained a default judgment against King Samir Shabazz. The injunction would prohibit Shabazz from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia polling place for the next three years.

      What do you think about this issue, in your own words, propagandist?

    • mikemc1970

      Then Holder dropped that altogether causing the attorney working the case to quit and write this:

      Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department

      The Department of Justice is America’s premier federal law enforcement
      agency. And according to J. Christian Adams, it’s also a base used by
      leftwing radicals to impose a fringe agenda on the American people.

      A five-year veteran of the DOJ and a key attorney in pursuing the New
      Black Panther voter intimidation case, Adams recounts the shocking story
      of how a once-storied federal agency, the DOJ’s Civil Rights division
      has degenerated into a politicized fiefdom for far-left militants, where
      the enforcement of the law depends on the race of the victim.

        The reason the case was dropped was because there was none. Nobody made any verbal threats against anybody and nobody made any threatening gestures against anybody.

        Big black men in pseudo military paraphanelia stood outside polling places. They may have looked scary to some people, but they committed no illegal acts.

        The scores of middle age white men in three piece suits as Republican poll watchers intimidated some people too. Should we arrest them. They did the exact same act.

        • mikemc1970

          The reason it was dropped was because Eric Holder didn’t think black people and political cronies that Obama actually marched with should have to suffer any consequences for their voter suppression.

    The “logic” of the black racial movement is to fight their claims of discrimination with their own version of racial discrimination, AKA “affirmative action”, so this assertion that race-based intimidation at the polls is necessary to combat their claim of race-based intimidation at the polls is perfectly in line with their ideology.

All of those things reqiure photo ID, and most of themmeet a higher standard than the polling place does. If someone doesn’t do any of the above items and has never needed a drivers lisence most state offer a free state photo ID, and if they aren’t doing any of the aforementioned things they have plenty of time on their hands. If someone has never been responsible for any of the things listed, I don’t think they are involved enough to vote anyway

    Here is your problem.

    What law did they break?

    They never issued a verbal threat.
    They did not make a threatening gesture towards anyone.
    They had no illegal weapons on them.

    Are you willing to tell people what type of clothing they are allowed to wear?

    The whole case boils down to some people are intimidated by scary black men.

    That is not much of a criminal case.

    Quote:
    Today, Matthew Boyle blows the lid off of the relationship between the United States Department of Justice press shop and the leftist activists at Media Matters, particularly flying monkey Matt Gertz.
    Boyle first documents Schmaler’s work with the Soros-funded Media Matters to attack former DOJ officials, including me! Boyle writes:

    Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.
    Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.” . . .
    Before Holden posted his article at 7:52 p.m., Schmaler sent him several emails with information helping him attack both former DOJ oficials.
    Holden attacked Adams again, and Christopher Coates — another now-former DOJ attorney.
    After Holden published that piece, Schmaler sent him an email titled “Great piece…” and continuing in the body of the message, “On USCCR investigation.’” One minute later, Holden responded, writing, “Thanks!”
